Pelvic Tilt

The pelvic tilt is a fundamental exercise which should be performed to either recover from or prevent episodes of low back pain. This exercise serves as the foundation from which many additional low back exercises stem. The Pelvic Tilt is important and it also helps one to identify their “neutral spine” position.

To perform the Pelvic Tilt you should lie on your back on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Your shoulders and hips should be square. The abdominal muscles along with the gluteal muscles are contracted to stabilize the spine and tilt the pelvis causing the lumbar lordotic curve to press firmly against the floor. This is a subtle maneuver, hold for the count of five and release, repeat five times.
